my computer started having problems 2 days ago with the monitor screen just shutting off while the computer itself was on and running. currently have a Nvidia geforce gt 220 graphics card and had thought it was the problem. have tried a system restore and updated the drivers. the problem message from windows reads as this.

I would uninstall the video drivers...and then reinstall same or updated drivers. The current ones are probably damaged.

Worth Reading, IMO.
